Trappable elements locations.

#1NorthernDruidPosted 2/2/2010 8:43:14 AM
Could anyone give me a list over trappable elements, and list the enemies its trappable from. Preferably with some sort of differentiation (like Capped first letter, or an asterisk*) for one-time-only enemies.

I've looked through some guides, but haven't been able to find any concrete list involving this only.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I've seen it, but its messy to find the traps since its not isolated.

going through those lists, then searching a beastiary for every entry, to figure out if i should be careful not to miss anything i'd regret later is something that is very time consuming to do.

I'm really rather surprised there isn't any good info on what one-time enemies have what trappable enemies.

I don't really like to have a walkthrough under my nose while playing a game.
I'd rather skip to where i'm going to see if there's anything very missable where i'm going next.

Hmm, I see, I might add a section like that in an update. >_>

I thought it was easy enough to just search the element name. ^_^;

What i would suggest would be a list, like that one, with what monsters you can trap them from, and where you can find them, noting whether or not they are one time only or not.
And most importantly, in order of appearance.

I might compile one for you and post here if i have the time. though i consider it unlikely being that i'm just now going to fort dragonia and that i don't know how to easily obtain the info such as locations and stuff.

*Golem
1. Use Golem(trap) on Centaurpede
[Hydra Marshes]
2. Use Golem(trap) on Solt [Boss, Isle of the Damned encounter]
3. Use Golem(trap) on Peppor [Boss, Isle of the Damned encounter]

And that should be it.

Now, i'm not a pro, so any inconsistencies i should've picked up on, any locations that are wrong, any notes in your guide i obviously didn't get, is solely due to my lack of knowledge about the game.

If you do add the list based on this in any sort of way, a little mention in the credits section wouldn't be frowned upon ;)
